0:00 Now, you're going to learn a bunch of cool
0:01 little building blocks in Python throughout this course.
0:05 How do I make a loop, how do I make a class
0:06 how do I create a web app, how do I, you know
0:08 render a template of eight dynamic html
0:11 and so on, and so on.
0:12 And these are super powerful to build up your toolbox
0:16 but it's more fun to actually build a thing
0:19 and I think you're going to learn a lot more.
0:21 So, when you're taking this course
0:22 I encourage you to do a couple of things.
0:24 Make sure you've cloned the git repository, of course
0:27 and then look through the C# version
0:30 maybe even before we start that chapter.
0:32 Play around with the code, it's usually one app
0:35 except for in the first chapter, the language one
0:37 where there's a bunch of super small
0:38 little features we're exploring
0:40 to explore the C# code
0:41 maybe even before you start that chapter
0:43 or right at the beginning
0:44 as before we even dive into the first demo.
0:46 We'll do that in the videos as well
0:48 but I think it'll help you to get a little bit more accurate
0:51 sense of what that C# code is about
0:54 and then try to recreate it in Python.
0:57 The goal of the course is to learn Python
0:59 so don't start that first.
1:01 Watch the chapter, and then
1:03 once you're done with that chapter
1:05 go and just create a new Python project
1:07 take the C# code, and try to recreate it.
1:10 Of course, if you get stuck, don't let that be a big deal.
1:13 Just go back over to the real repository
1:15 of the code you saw me write, and go
1:16 oh yeah, that's how we do a for in loop, got it.
1:19 And then go back and keep working, or whatever, okay?
1:23 So I think if you want to get the most out of this course
1:25 you should try to follow along, and try to build stuff
1:27 and I think the way to do it here
1:29 was to look at the C# code
1:31 and try to build the equivalent in Python.
1:34 That's what we do in the videos
1:35 and I think it'll be a fun way to reinforce what we learned.
1:38 We all love building things, right?
